Just curious...a "roll call" of sorts. Just post with the number of years you have been around the forum. Of course, I would love to hear from Ashes & Mcglone, but really, anybody will do in a pinch. Was just wanting to see how many of "us" are regulars, and it seems the number has been rising the past yr or so.

3 yrs this fall for me.

When I stumbled in it was about 8 months before the SBD'w were pulled. I was so busy grabbing all that I could that I never even noticed that there was a forum. Once the boards were pulled I began lurking. I'm here absorb. and that I have. Thanks to all who contribute. I'm a better Head for it.

hey, wt

not so long ago, (spring 2004) I found myself googling all things grateful + dead + recordings etc... at the time, i had collected my fair share of DP’s and other live commercial releases and figured by now the fabled vault had to have been leaked. sure enough... later that fall i stumbled across the essay ‘dark star as an example of transcendental aesthetics’ and other provocative writings on and about the art and music i had missed while been caught up in my own musical journeys. needless to say it was nice to be home again. like so many others i ‘lurked’ on the etree forum not throwing my two cents in until the opera of the soundboards began playing out. thanks to good folks such as yourself it’s still probably my favourite spot on the internet .

all the best my friend .

onward.

I was surprised to learn that my first post was exactly a year ago - or do the post records only go back a year? Either way, I was lurking on the archive for a couple of years before I ever entered the forum. I downloaded a lot of boards, and was in the middle of copying the entire archive when they were taken away, so I have to guess that I've been onto the archive since about mid-2005.

Been about a year. My first post was May 07, 2008 and I always lurk long before I post anywhere. I remember the post well,..it was to Tigerbolt in regards to his heads up about the Marin Bluegrass Fest. from 74 being put up over at LLegs. I had seen LLegs referred to before but never asked what it was till then. The 4th disc has OAITW and there's Garcia , Grisman, and Vassar throughout. I was motivated to ask/post and am glad that I did.
Thanks again TB ;) and thank you fellow heads here at the archive just for being here !

I guess a large percentage would disregard the 100+ degree temps. just to hear that 21 minute PITB, or for me it would be the 32 minute Dark Star and the China/Rider,..not to mention the killer Bird Song. Don't get me wrong,.. the Carousel in 68 and the RFK shows are fantastic and are jewels to be in awe of. Just something about the Creamery benefit just draws me to it. All that free flowing noodling and the energy it lays on ya. They were on fire and that's what I need.
and all I got.

A little more than 3 years. I started lurking right after the suppression of the SBDs in Nov '05, but didn't speak up until the following September. I've been checking in a couple times a day, most days, ever since, and think of it as one of the nicest things I get to do in a typical day. Despite the trolls and the occasional juvenile nonsense, no other community I connect to, online or off, is as consistently sincere and friendly.

My first posts were September 2006 (first responders JodyC - where did he go? and the good old wolfman himself), although I was certainly lurking around in the pre-dedicated GD forum days and was a witness to the Great Soundboard Massacre of '05 (I have never ever seen so many panties in a bunch all at the same time - quite spectacular).

Started posting in 2006 but I found the archive in 2004 when they first started uploading shows. I reviewed a few shows back in the early days.

BTW, I've been really enjoying some of the shows from'68 as I've been primarily an 80's dead guy. I was wondering what your opinion of 10-20-68 is? I know there's only a partial show available, but I find that this show has strange addictive qualities for lack of better words. Oh well, thanks for beating that 68 drum. I finally caved in and moved back a few decades.

7 months for me, and yes I still feel like the new kid in town. Though I'm not a very frequent poster, I do read as many posts every day as time allows. Still consider myself an apprentice, studying/learning from those that have much more knowledge than I do. I love this forum - since none of my friends like the Grateful Dead AT ALL, the folks here make my obsession with the music feel somehow "normal" (though surely it can't be). Anyway, it's therapeutic to find kindred spirits.

My first post was June '07 after lurking for 5 or 6 months. I had my real name under that post, changed screen names, but it's still me. I guess you folks have had to put up with me for around two years now.

First post: July 9 2007 - I guess it means I'll have two full years under my belt in a 4 months.

I think I lurked for a few months. Discovered the GD music part of the archive (first DL) in April 2007

first post demember of '04, didn't have much access to the internet between '06 and '07, and came back officially in the spring of '08. Love this place and all the true conversationalists out there.

Lurked for a good while, but started typing here in May 2007. It's a bit odd being in a different time zone to most posters (except other UK forumites), but it's interesting to see what was discussed overnight when I log on at work in the morning.

I don't think I've ever had 40 some replies to something.

Good to hear from one and all.

And some of you really are old farts like Dire.

Seems like the break of significance is for those that arrived Pre-Pull (Nov of 05)....
